I've seen references to Booster pop up on quite a few sites this week. Rather than spotlight any one of them and leave the others out, I'll just share what I've found and let you visit whatever you think sounds good.
Edward Wallace counts Booster's force field among the "Most Powerful Weapons in the DC Comic Book Universe."(FortressofSolitude.co.za)
Now you've got something to read between your green beers tomorrow, Booster boosters! Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day weekend.

Not so long ago, Erin of Exploring the Time Lab was ruminating on some older comics she wanted to read. Included in her list was Blasters Special #1, which just happens to have been released 29 years ago today.
The Blasters were a space-faring group of super heroes spinning out of the Invasion! event. (I always think of them as a second-rate Omega Men.) Their biggest claim to fame was the inclusion of cast-off JLA mascot Snapper Carr, who had gained the ability to teleport by snapping his fingers. Snapper's inclusion in the Blasters was short lived (as were the Blasters themselves: their entire career was limited to Invasion, this one shot, and a couple of issues of Valor). Snapper would eventually move on to support the DC One Million-incarnation of Hourman in his own title.
So far as Booster Gold is concerned, his brief cameo in Blasters Special is limited entirely to the two-page spread pictured above. Of special note is the fact that this is the only time to date Booster has appeared on-panel with lesser known DC Comics heroes Brother Power the Geek or Shade the Changing Man. Oddly, Booster Gold wouldn't appear on panel with any of the Blasters until 2007, when he finally crossed paths with Snapper Carr at the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary.

In case you missed the news on Friday, Greg Berlanti told TheWrap.com that the much anticipated Booster Gold movie is still "in development with DC."
According to Wrap reporter Matt Donnelly, Berlanti said
"They're trying to figure out both the distance that we still have to travel and how we want to execute it."
Another factor for the studio, he said, was "how it's going to fit into their greater landscape" — meaning the rest of the DC Films slate that has been in a state of flux given the muted critical and box office reception for films likeSuicide Squad and Justice League.
"That's really on them, they're still kind of determining their order of business on that end."
The article goes on to state that Berlanti has completed a draft of the script (presumably by Zack Stentz), and he "remains open" to directing ("if the studio is excited — it's obviously their determination").
It sounds to me like Booster boosters need to start showing some love to the live-action DC films currently in the pipeline at Warner Bros (and maybe also to Berlanti's current movie project, Love, Simon) if we want to encourage the studio to finally pull the trigger on bringing Booster Gold: The Movie to a theater near us anytime soon.
